Can you believe that I bought these red beads with the idea to make something for Christmas… Well, that did not work out as planned. So I guess starting this beading project now is a good idea, because then it actually might be finished for next xmas. 😛
It is of course, going to be a bib. And I have more of these boxes that I bought that I have not had time to use yet, so I hope to make one now and then.
Meanwhile, the three bracelets I made last week have been added to the shop, here are some photos of them.
I don’t think the red beaded necklace will be ready next week, but there is always the chance that I make something else during the week… 😜
See you later!
So I had the idea to make more layered cuff bracelets, but with less layers. So I made three stranded memory wire cuff bracelets. These are the first three, and I hope to make a few more in the future. I just have to buy more beads. So stay tuned!
I still have to take photos of them individually to be able to list them in my shop, but the bracelets already available in my shop can be found here and you can also find many bracelets in my etsy shop.
Usually when I create something I go with the flow. This time I decided that I needed to remake a few of my sold choker necklaces. The design has been around for a while and I have made this necklace with many different types of beads and even stones.
It is very seldom my little creative corner (which actually usually is a little space on the floor of the living room) turns into a sort of factory. But this time it kind of did, as the top photo maybe tells you. I took one piece of leather, and glued the beads in different places, one colour at a time.
The purple and the teal green are beads I have used before, so these necklaces will be put straight into my Etsy shop (soon I hope). But the light blue and the red are brand new colours and will be put into my shop here. I just need to take photos wearing them first, I did not get a chance to do that this weekend.
Which colour is your favourite?
It was really fun making my first pieces with a new black chain. This metal chain is treated so that it looks dark, and I think it makes it have a more rocker look. This first time I made a necklace with sparkly beads and a pair of earrings where I played with the two nuances of the chains.
Let me know what you think!
I hope to have these up in my shop soon!
I have been doing a lot of paper work lately. Trying to close the books for last year. But I did take the time to make another bracelet.
This time the multi stranded cuff bracelet is made with green aventurine stones and glass beads. I decided to combine the green with grey and black beads because of the way the stones vary in color.
I really like how this one turned out. If you are curious about others in the same style you can find more bracelets in my shop and also more bracelets on Etsy.
The bracelet is already available in the shop!
It is quite fun when you design something new, it is a challenge. You don’t know if it will turn out good or not.
This time it is the multi stranded choker I made, where I did not know if combining two colors sort of half and half would look nice. But hey, you can only try…
I am happy with how it looks, the grey and the turquoise do look nice together. And also I like the idea that I got that there are some beads that are among the “wrong” color.
This choker necklace has more strands than the other beaded chokers I have made before, because I wanted it to get more of a chunky look, so I made this one with eight strands.
I also made a new bib necklace, using only clear glass beads that looks like drops. This minimalist style small statement necklace can be worn with any outfit.
Both these necklaces can already be found in my shop.
New purple bracelets
I started to make a few new items, and suddenly I realised, that two of them are sort of purple bracelets. So I thought it was perfect to make my first blog post about new items from 2019 a themed one.
So here they are my (sort of) purple bracelets, one with small seed beads and one cuff bracelet, but both in layers.
The new bracelets are already in my shop! And if you like layered bracelets, don’t miss out on looking in the section for layered bracelets in my etsy shop!
Happy New Year! I know it is the middle of January already, and it might be a little late to wish you a happy new year, but fortunately a wish can’t hurt.
So, do you make resolutions? In the past I have never made any promises, because I know myself too well. But this year I actually have some plans that I would like to make a reality. So here we go…
My three point plan for 2019
- Start to exercise. I need to start working out. In my day job I sit at a desk all day, and (as you might imagine) my creative life also means sitting a lot. So doing some kind of workout would make a big difference for my health.
- Travel by train. I love to travel and see different places and cultures. I have become more concerned about the effects of flying a lot over the years, so this time I would like to choose a more environmentally friendly way to travel. The plan is that this years summer vacation will go by train.
- Think before I shop. This is on the same path as above, for the environment. This will be the easiest thing to fulfill actually since I’m not a big shopper anyway. And I have cheated and started last year. I don’t need to be cool and have the latest phone, or anew lamp just because it is pretty, and so on. As long as it’s working – it stays.
Do you have any special plans for this new year? Let me know in the comments below.
New jewelry? Patience, it is coming… Next week I hope, so stay tuned!
Winter inspired maybe?
I don’t know if it was that first snow we had, or just a random coincidence, but all new jewelry I made recently turned out white and blue. It suits winter though. 🙂
Here they are:
I hope to have them up in the shop soon! Also, don’t forget to stop by my etsy shop for more jewelry.
Finished the copper necklaces
So here they are, the new copper necklaces I was working on.
I am really happy with both of them. They turned out like I had pictured them in my head.
I hope to have them up in my shop soon. And don’t miss the Cyber Week Sale on Etsy, discounts on everything in my shop!
